Why Start with an Inbound Marketing Strategy?
B2B companies that take the time to define their inbound marketing strategy before committing to specific technologies tend to be more successful with their marketing technology deployments. CRM and marketing automation systems are often implemented in rapid succession. However, these two technologies are very different in terms of what it takes to prepare for a successful implementation.
From a financial perspective, it’s critical to start developing an inbound marketing strategy before committing to a specific technology. Inbound marketing strategy is part of an overall digital marketing approach.
If your organization is planning to take your digital marketing to the next level, it’s important to be selective about which digital initiatives are tackled first.
How Does It Work?
Our “strategy first” approach to inbound marketing involves the following components:
- Educating your team on the relevant capabilities of marketing automation technologies
- Brainstorming on initial initial marketing campaigns
- Determining which marketing technologies are needed
- Developing a customized inbound marketing playbook
Our marketing automation campaign playbook can be used as a roadmap to base your implementation on. It covers a wide variety of topics, including:
- Traffic sources
- Desired visitor actions
- Conversion tactics
- Key performance indicators
- Ongoing progress vs. goals
Most marketing automation vendors provide onboarding services, but those sessions can be like attending college business school classes when you’ve never worked in the real world.
CRM Switch’s inbound marketing strategy services will ensure that your organization is ready to take the best advantage of marketing automation tools once the vendor contract is signed.
